Assessment for cranial strain patterns, followed by indirect osteopathic treatment of dysfunctions found on assessment, followed by reassessment.
Procedure: Cranial osteopathic manipulation
This treatment is performed by exaggerating the motion asymmetry with a minimum of pressure (a few ounces) and holding the position until the motion becomes symmetrical.
Sham Comparator: 2
Assessment for cranial strain patterns, followed by laying on of hands, followed by reassessment.
A laying on of hands with no treatment being performed.
- Accommodative system testing Visual acuity testing Stereoacuity testing Vergence system testing Pupillary testing [ Time Frame: Immediately after intervention. ]
